Casey + Gino { Elegant Vintage Inspired Hawaiian Affair at Olowalu Plantation House}

Olowalu Maui Wedding

From the moment I met Casey and Gino they were just a sparkle of glamour and everything amazing. I met them at their engagement session before their wedding, they were so cute, happy, sweet and beyond stylish. I got to really know them that day, I heard their story and truly established a friendship with them prior to their wedding day.

The day of the wedding at tropical Olowalu Plantation house was absolutely epic from start to finish. The first thing that really stood out to me about them on their wedding day was how much they value their family and friends, Everyone was so happy, warm and welcoming. It is truly hard to put into words how much joy you could feel throughout their entire day, and how much love every guest in attendance has for this cute boys. 

My absolute favorite moment of Casey and Gino's day was when they walked down the aisle together. Casey started tearing up looking at Casey, and through the photos you can see the sparkle in their faces. You truly can feel the joy and love they share radiating through them. 

 

Casey and Gino integrated the kids so beautifully by including them all as part of their processional, and immediately following the ceremony Casey and Gino went straight up to the children to start dancing and playing with them. I believe you can learn a lot about people by how they treat children, and even though this couple doesn't have kids of their own yet, the love and attention they gave all the kids spoke volumes to me. 

The only only flowers the couple wanted in their ceremony was flower leis for all of their guests. The leis were draped over every guest's chair and they were all encouraged to wear them for the rest of the day. This small gesture added one more way of including every guest and showing how much the couple values each of them.

 

Another beautiful way that Casey and Gino included all of their guests was by having a small hula dancing lesson taught by Manutea E Nui following the ceremony. The dancing got all the guests involved and having fun! Manutea E Nui then performed a hula and fire dancing show for everyone following dinner.

 

It was such an honor to be such an integral part of capturing Casey and Gino's special day and documenting their love. Their love is contagious and inspiring, and everyone deserves a love like theirs.

Mel + Matt {Elegant and Chic Olowalu Maui Destination wedding}

What a better way to star the year than with this elegant chic Aussie Wedding, charming couple Mel + Matt managed to plan a destination wedding in Maui all the way from Koala land in the most exquisite possible way for both families from America and Australia. I was so fortunate to first meet them through Skype!, yay! how amazing I get to meet so many beautiful people from all over the world and we don't let the distance getting the way for me to get to know them better and do the best to capture their love story. 

It was very important for the bride and groom to express their love for each other and faith in front of their closest friend and family and thats why they choose Maria Lanakila church in Lahaina. And the beautiful majestic architecture of the Church di not disappoint for the lovely and intimate ceremony. The off we headed to Hotel Wailea for a magnificent party where the gorgeous floral of Dellables transformed the room in such a classic yet modern style decor for the saloon. We had an amazing time and I wish these handsome couple the best time of their life for all thats is to come.
